Hooked on Candles

Hooked on Candles are handmade right here amongst the dairy cows in the Felton Valley.  Why do we use 100% pure Soy Wax and not cheaper waxes, by-products of making petroleum fuels? Not only are we supporting farmers but we are also protecting the environment.

  • Soy wax is 100% vegetable, natural and biodegradable, made from soybeans. 
  • Soy has 40-50%  larger 'scent throw' and 30-50% longer burn than paraffin candles.
  • Soy wax burns cooler and slower than paraffin wax. It is safer to burn around the house
  • Soy burns cleaner, is non-toxic and lead-free; no carcinogens are produced from burning soy candles.
  • These candles contain NO petroleum, paraffin or beeswax products, pesticides, herbicides, toxic materials or genetically-modified material.
